Subject: [PATCH] Add EV_IR bit
Date: Thu, 13 Aug 2009 00:33:27 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This patch adds an EV_IR bit to allow input drivers to let userspace 
know that the hardware is an infrared remote control transceiver.

No dev->irbit is defined yet but I plan to add that later (which would 
be used to indicate whether the hardware supports RX, TX, etc).

If the patch is accepted I'll send followup patches adding the 
appropriate input_set_capability call to the relevant drivers.
